This book investigates solutions, benefits, limitations, and costs associated with multi-standard operation of RF front-ends and their ability to adapt to variable radio environments. Next, it highlights the optimization of RF front-ends to allow maximum performance within a certain power budget, while targeting full integration. Finally, the book investigates possibilities for low-voltage, low-power circuit topologies in CMOS technology.
